Frequently Asked Questions

How do I turn a video 90 degrees?

+

Upload your file to the VEED free video editor. Click ‘Adjust’. In the ‘Rotation’ section, type 90 to rotate 90 degrees clockwise, or -90 to rotate counterclockwise. Then click ‘Export’ to save your video.

How do I rotate a video without losing quality?

+

Use VEED’s online tool to rotate your video, and export as MP4. This ensures compatibility with all media players and is the best file format for YouTube, Facebook, and other major platforms.

Why is my video sideways?

+

Built-in accelerometers on smartphones are usually able to detect the orientation of the phone, and knows when a video is shot in portrait or landscape mode. However, there may be times when the phone does not adjust its orientation at the moment you start filming. If that’s the case, you will end up with a sideways video. Fortunately, that’s super easy to fix using VEED’s rotate video tool.

Is it better to film vertical or horizontal?

+

Decide on the orientation of your video based on what you’re filming and what platform you’re uploading it to. Choose the horizontal orientation, called landscape mode, if the video is going on YouTube or a Facebook post. Keep it vertical, or portrait mode, if the video is for Instagram Stories or Facebook Live.

Can I stretch a video to remove the black bars after I’ve rotated it?

+

Yes! When using VEED to rotate your video, you may see black bars on the sides after rotating. You can stretch the rotated video by dragging the corners or edges of the video's image. Or go to ‘Transformation’ under the ‘Settings’ tab. Choosing the appropriate canvas size and the option ‘Fill the canvas’ will utilize the available space, removing the black bars.

What they say
about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen.

Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.
